(b) Series inductor
(c) Synchronous condenser
(d) Series capacitor

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. for an ideal transformer, only magnetizing component is taken into amount. Io only inductive nature.

So, Io lags V_1 by 90° for ideal transformer.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. e=L di/dt=0.5×(1-(-1))/(1×10^(-3) )=1000 V

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. A 3-phase induction motor is a self-starting motor. Starter is employed to limit the starting current (not producing starting current).

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Mutual flux(𝟇) α 1/reluctance

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Deep bar rotors are used in induction motors to increase the starting torque.
Deep bar rotors provide:
More resistance at starting
Low resistance at the running condition

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Ns=120f/P=(120×50)/4=1500 rpm
∴efficiency(η)=Nr/Ns =1470/1500×100=98 %

S7. Ans.(d)

I_a = I_sn + I_L

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. To restore residual magnetism, it is necessary to voltage build up, which can be done by connecting shunt field to the battery.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. for power factor improvement, synchronous condenser is used.
Synchronous condenser is basically a synchronous motor operating at no-load and leading power factor.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Ferranti effect in overhead transmission lines is experienced at light load condition in this phenomenon, V_R>V_S ie, receiving end voltage is greater than sending end voltage. To overcome this problem, shunt reactors are used at receiving end of lines.
